Read what some of our previous clients say about the Warwick Ring.
"It was a superb opportunity to relax and do very little. Even though only a couple of us had done this before, everyone enjoyed themselves and most are talking about when I'm going to organise another trip next year. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Many thanks."
"A great thing was that everybody had a go. There one or two who were reluctant to begin with, but by the end of the week they were enjoying it the most."
"This was the first time for my family travelling on the canal. It was hard physical work (though not too hard for the 10 year old to operate the locks!) and we found that after a couple of days the 4 of us worked as an efficient team - not bad for a family."
"We went from Rugby Wharf to Crick and back via Braunston Junction and Foxton Junction. The Watford Locks was defitintely the highlight of the trip for me. We've got a great picture of two of the lads getting soaked by spray from the lock gates on the return trip!"
"We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are currently discussing which canal holiday to choose next. We all came back completely refreshed and relaxed which was the main objective anyway. Boat, hire staff other holiday makers could not have been bettered."
